Year 12 Graduation
This week we have farewelled Katya, Daniel and Michael. Our prayers are with them and their families as they enter this new stage of their life and seek the best options for their future.

Staff change for Term 4
It is with sadness that we farewell Mrs Rowena Cornale this week. She has accepted a full time position at Northholm Grammar School commencing in Term 4. Mrs Cornale has been a wonderful assistant in Class M on Tuesdays and Thursdays and has also done some casual work when needed. We are thankful for her support at New Hope School and we wish her all the best as she moves on to her new role. For Term 4, Mrs Stacy Whiteman will increase her days to cover the Thursday and Mrs Jean Smit who has been doing some casual work at New Hope School, will cover the Tuesday support.

Smoothie Fundraiser
The final amount raised was $780. This money will be used for our Compassion Sponsor Child. Well done Mr Francis, Mrs Philips and Class F for this amazing effort. The students demonstrated excellent skills and abilities that will help them as they prepare for work opportunities beyond school.

Open Day
The next New Hope School open day will be held on Friday 20 October, commencing at 10am. If you know of any families that may be interested in finding out more about New Hope School for their child, then please pass on this information.

End of Term 3
We wish all our families a restful and enjoyable school break. Term 4 commences on Tuesday 10 October. Staff will return on Monday 9 October for a Professional Development Day.
